Hey all,

Im a new user here, aswell as a new car owner, and i really wanted to join so here is my intro :D

I just turned 17 last month and have bought my first car, its a MINI ONE, with the following mods.

Bluefin Chip, Miltek Cat Back Exhaust System, Iridium Spark Plugs and Viper Induction kit,

aswll as KW Variant 1 Coilovers.

i love it too bits and i just wanted to show you guys it :D what do yous think ?

anything you feel needs added to the car ?

i have a few questions and here they are...

I need to raise the suspension a LITTLE bit as i cant pull my car onto the drive without bottoming

out haha, does any one know where i can buy the tool from that enables me to do so ?

what else i was wondering was if i can by seat covers for the car ? and does any one know where

i can find these ?

also what BHP is my car producing ? with the above mods ?

Here are a few picz of my car :D

look forward to your replies :D

Very nice mini.

Low is the way to go :D especially with 18's. I want coilovers to lower mine more on 18's as im only on springs. Although i already bottom out on dips in the road and scrape on everything that isnt flat :S

Prob about 125-130 bhp i would say. it is what im aiming for also.

Congratulations on your first car, a very nice one at that. Your Mini looks well cool!

Looks like it has an aerokit from the front, and the wheels are nuts! Please don't raise it though, go lower:p

Re performance, Im thinking around 125-130. I want a viper induction:mad:

Good luck!!

After seeing your car on coilovers Im getting coils.
Im on springs with my 18's but want to really lower it as much as possible without rubbing.
